These fields of journalism are synonymous to each other as one cannot survive without the other. This is a prestigious line which brings name and fame to every individual respectively depending on their potential output. In earlier times this field did not have any attraction or reputation because as a field the scope to perform was restricted and very much limited.

The opportunities for journalists are endless but the job has become far more challenging than before. If any individual cannot keep up with the changing scenarios and environments then rise in this industry becomes a far-fetched dream.
